Don’t you wish you had some relaxation tips under your belt so you could relax for a moment or two?
I know everyone experiences this feeling throughout the day.
I am no exception to that rule!
Relaxation re-energizes the body.
This is common knowledge.
But I do feel I’m so busy, caught up in the moment that I often think I do not have the time to unwind.
Fortunately, I have learned some simple ways to relax. I use them even during my busiest days.
And I don’t need a lot of equipment or time to follow them.
Here are those 5 Simple Relaxation Tips I promised to share with you:
Instead of stressing out, when you’re in line at the grocery stores relax your body by taking some deep breaths.
It won’t be the first and probably not the last time that there aren’t enough cashiers and every line has people with heaps of groceries.
Deep breathing helps increase the oxygen in your blood.
That extra oxygen then circulates throughout your body helping your inner systems to recharge.Just take five slow deep breaths to do the trick.
The do it right inhale and exhale deeply through your nose and out your mouth.You will notice that deep breathing will help you relax, reduce brain fog and it’ll help to clear your mind.
You’ll feel more alert and ready to deal with the next task on your plate.You can practice deep breathing anywhere when you want to clear your mind or when you’re feeling stressed.
When you’re working at your job, it’s often hard to find time to relax.
Being caught “relaxing” might even get you in trouble!
There are several things you can do to help create a sense of calm that isn’t so obvious to others while you’re at work.Make sure you get up and move around for a few minutes every hour if your job requires you to sit at a computer all day.
This helps the blood circulate throughout your body.
It will make you feel more alert and focused.
I sometimes roll my head around, from side to side and from front to back with my eyes closed when I am sitting behind my desk.
This simple exercise helps me to relieve neck tension, increasing blood flow to my brain.
This is an easy and natural way to relax.
When I am on my feet all day I’ll stretch out my back and sides by standing with my feet firm on the floor, shoulder-width apart, and twist my upper body, including my head, slowly from side to side.
I have often felt this will loosen up my back muscles and spine, releasing tension throughout my body.
Go for a walk during a break or lunchtime.
Walk to clear your mind.
As a bonus, your body will benefit too from the extra exercise.
When I rush through a busy day, taking just a few moments to daydream helps me escape the business of reality.
Daydreaming lets my imagination flow.
These precious moments cause instant relief from the stress of the real world.If you want to try this yourself think of an experience or a place that makes you feel calm or happy.
Imagine how the air feels, how it smells, and who’s around.
You’ll feel reenergized, relaxed, and ready to face the real world again after only five minutes of daydreaming.
Smiling helps relax and rejuvenate your body.
So wherever you’re at, smile 😉
Smile at others around you when you’re out and about.
It will help you relax, and it’ll help relax others as well.
Laugh when the going gets tough.
Laughter is an instant stress reliever.
When you can, get someone involved in your laughter with you.
Tell a funny joke or story (at an appropriate time, of course).
Play a fun game or sing a silly song with your kids or spouse as you’re driving.
Watch funny videos on YouTube.
Doing any one of these simple, everyday relaxation techniques will help you go forward during your day.
It’ll also make it easier to unwind when you get home.
